Darker yellow to light amber coloured beer with some light carbonation and a rather small white head. Sour fruity and light woody aroma. Little sour full body. Finish is sour fruity. Good but not the best. Yves (3110) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2009 Light amber coloured beer, medium carbonation, almost no head. Sour aroma, just reminded me to sour candy balls. Strong sour palate ending smoother. Nicely balanced. Good one. santos999 (318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Best before 06/01/2025, so I’m assuming it was bottled in 05, right? Pours a mighty gold with a thin, bubbly white head. The smell is astringent and obviously young. I can tell already this bad boy needs some years in the cellar. Strong funk, not alot of brettyness though, super oaky, semi-fruity aroma. The taste is mouth puckeringly sour. Straight sour.. not acidic, yet not quite vinegary. Just sour. Super strong oak. Taste like a very young Gewürztraminer. Overall very tasty and traditional, super funky, loads of complexity, great body, just needs a few more years to develop into a masterpiece.

Golden color with a powerful oaky-sour aroma. The nose has apple, citrus, and assorted funky fruit. Flavor has a nice funky sourness to it that I find tasty, but not quite top notch. Mouthfeel benefits from the tanginess and I find it to be a pleasant meal companion.

hazy pale gold with a small frothy white head. aroma of banana, pineapple, grains, citrus. moderately sour and very dry palate. flavors of lemon, pineapple, and some light spice(ginger?). very good and complex. well made. kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JAN 12, 2008
375mL bottle @ Brickskeller, best before date of 14.03.2022. Pours a hazy, golden-brown color; whitish head with fine-bubbled lacing. Plenty of funk, horseblanket, overripe fruit, and sticky sugar in the aroma; a bit too overripe and sweet. Medium mouthfeel: a decent level of citrus tartness and plenty of overripe fruit; too much, again; sticky sugar and overripe fruit. Medium, tart citrus, horseblanket, and fruit in the finish; a bit of dough. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2008
75 cl bottle. Hazy golden with a rocky head that started quite big. Wonderfully complex geuze aroma with citrus, talc and wood. Acidic flavours with quite abit of apples, citrus and wood. Complex geuze character, but different from the dominant apple bite I remember from older Oud Beersel geuze. Fizzy. A geuze reborn greater than it once was?

Poured cloudy golden copper color with a large white sticky foamy head. Aroma is earthy and of mellow citrus. Tastes of tart apples and a little bit of grapefruit. Overall not that aweful sour. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JAN 3, 2008
Bottle; only my second or third for the style. It has been a while; so lets see what I think of the style now. Poured a hazy, dirty gold color with medium sized white head. Aroma is funky with yeast, fruit, oak/earth and apple. Soft on the palate and dry. Flavor surprised me in that I didn’t find it overly funky or sour. Maybe my palate has developed with time. Flavor of fruits, apples, earth, yeast; both a little sweet and sour. Minimal hop presence. Drinkable and pretty tasty.
